Fashion Tip Tuesday with Gorgeous Girlz
Today's tip is... Back to basics
With all the bling, statement pieces and large bags we may forget the fundamental building blocks to a great wardrobe. With that thought in mind, this week's tips is going to bring us back to a more centered and simplistic place.
We are often trying to say something with our look or be on trend but what about the little things that really bring our look together. I always start from the inside out. I won't go into it this week but you always want to start your look with well fitting undergarments and work your way out.
In today's pic I am highlighting my simple black tank. It's BASIC, but it proves to be the perfect backdrop for this statement necklace and fabulous skirt from Eloquii. You always need black and white tanks in your wardrobe!! I tend to have multiples and sometimes in different fabric blends to fit any occasion. Making good use of your wardrobes means that you can mix and match your pieces to create multiple looks. In this look I elevated this tank with this feather accented necklace. This necklace calls for the simplicity of a basic top. This classic red skirt paired with a small black clutch gives an effortlessly chic look which was perfect for the outdoor wedding I attended Saturday.
Here are some other ways to can build on this basic.... You can take off the necklace and throw on a jean jacket and loop a scarf around my neck or even throw on a blazer and some pearls or even through on one of fashions revived trends, a chocker paired with frayed jeans.
Here are some other basics I suggest to boost your closet selections. You can vary the color but black, navy and grey are always useful...Great fitting tailored slacks...a pencil skirt...blazer...solid column dress. When you have these items in hand you can build up and layer with your bold, on trend or flashier pieces.
No matter what turn fashion may take, basic pieces never go out of style and add a classic flair to your look. Remembering , simple done right can be a statement so...let's get back to basics!!!! #fashiontiptuesday #iamgorgeousgirlz #xoq
